G-8 supports further measures against Iran

The Group of Eight countries said Friday that they "will support adopting further measures" if Iran refuses to put a halt to its uranium enrichment program. G-8 leaders said they would back UN Security Council moves on a third set of sanctions against Iran if Teheran failed to suspend enriching uranium, a process that can produce fuel for civilian energy - or fissile material for a bomb. "We again urge Iran to take the steps required by the international community, and made mandatory by these resolutions, to suspend all its enrichment-related and reprocessing activities, including research and development, and allow negotiations to begin," it said at a summit in Germany.
